The Case For Yet Another Digital Preservation Evaluation Tool
  DOI :  10.2352/issn.2168-3204.2014.11.1.art00006  Published OnlineJune 2014

Early 2013 DEN and PACKED launched a score model for the preservation of digital collections ( The model is intended as a self-evaluation tool: organizations that host and/or manage digital collections can use the Score model to identify the potential threats to the long-term viability and accessibility of digital collections. In contrast to OAIS-oriented tools such as ISO 16363, the Score model is aimed towards smaller institutions, who have limited technical and organizational competencies. The criteria in this checklist are grouped around seven sections, in each of which a limited number of criteria are given, using as little technical jargon as possible. The resulting report can be used as a planning tool to systematically tackle the threats to digital preservation. By introducing risk levels, organizations are triggered to prioritize actions and to focus on measurements that are most important to take.
